We are delighted to be partnering with Trutex in providing our practical, smart, and elegant school uniforms. We were impressed with their pedigree as a company that works closely with their partner schools, as well as their deep focus on both quality and sustainability.

The Uniform can either be ordered and then collected within the school, or ordered online and delivered to your home or purchased in their store.

  • School bags must be used at all times.
  • Girls wear white socks, boys wear grey socks. All children wear black leather flat shoes, not trainers.
  • Hair should be of natural colour and out of the eyes so that learning is not impeded. If a child’s hair is tied back a navy blue or RGS green hair tie or band should be used.
